Bonnaroo 2013 (more by Katherine Hansen)

As mentioned, Bonnaroo 2014 happens June 12 - 15 in Manchester, TN. The fest has already been dropping hints as to who's going to play this year (Kanye and Elton John seem likely as headliners) but will finally spill the beans tonight via a web show called "Blam!" which airs at 9 PM EST on Bonnaroo.com (or an Xbox app). (Maybe you watched last year's with Weird Al Yankovich and Portugal the Man.) This year's announcement special is hosted by SNL's Taran Killam and Broad City's Hannibal Buress, with a "superjam" between The Flaming Lips and Ben Folds.

There's also a pre-Blam! web event from 7 - 9 PM EST featuring live cover song performances from Tenacious D, Kings Of Leon, Phish, My Morning Jacket, and others.

Or you can just check back here: we'll have the full Bonnaroo 2014 line-up in this post once its announced.

Posted by kate | February 19, 2014 9:41 PM

Top 3 headliners are Elton John and the two best artists of the past 15 years. Terrible lineup indeed.

Gov Ball 2013 + Gov Ball 2014 = Bonnaroo 2014. I'll pass on the trip to Tennessee and take a cab to Randall's Island instead.

Hey Brooklyn Vegan! I love your posts. Bonnaroo has a sick lineup this year. Care if I share my review of the lineup along with concert reviews with your audience at my blog: http://wevebeentherebefore.blogspot.com

I'll be sure to share your blog!

Kanye West, Vampire Weekend, - No reason to read any further. You couldn't pay me to sit through that garbage. My how popular music continues to get worse and worse every year.

There was weed the last two years. I had to carry the shit home because no one would buy it.

If you can't find weed at bonnaroo, you must be wearing cop sunglasses.

Years ago Fuck Kanye chants were heard all around the Bonnaroo campgrounds because of the stunt he pulled, screwing Phil Lesh and all of the other late night performers. Now he headlines. Lame.

I didn't know Phil Lesh was that kind of guy

Hey Damon Alarn - have Blur tour stateside! No one wants to see you play solo,

Posted by Anonymous | February 20, 2014 11:36 AM

^I agree sadly. I like all of Damons work but it is a big misteak to come solo. Blur hasn't tour with Graham Coxon since 1999-2000 in the US. People at these large festivals will be disinterested to hear acoustic Blur songs. Damon will prob also get 45-60 minutes max. Not a good use of your time.

Posted by Anonymous | February 20, 2014 12:16 PM

I cannot believe Kanye is playing. Does noone remember what happened last time he played bonnaroo?

Lets refer back to an old BV post:

I have been reading the comments to this post and it has been driving me crazy how negative everyone has been. Not because their opinion is wrong, but how they react to the article because they think it is wrong. So, I created a tool to make it more objective to rank this year's festivals. Go to my blog to use the new 2014 Music Festival Calculator to determine which has the best lineup in your mind: http://wevebeentherebefore.blogspot.com/2014/02/2014-music-festival-calculator.html
